The fins on some LPR rockets I purchased broke during shipping. Can I just glue the broken piece back on or do the fins need to be reinforced somehow?
I'm assuming you are saying the tape is permanent part of the fin. If that is the case then I would not bother with tape. That's because tape has an irregular surface (not smooth) and the bond might not be that good. You are better off with paper. Paper needs a very very thin layer of Elmer's White glue (like spread with a old credit card), then applied to the fin. You just need something on top while it cures to resist warping. Make sure you give the part adequate air circulation as it require some amount of air to cure.Thanks for the replies. What about a piece of tape on both sides of the crack, with a layer of glue above and below the tape?
